Did you also change the spark plugs? If the plugs are shot then changing the coils won't help.

spark plugs probably need changed yes but the coil pack itself is not firing replaced it still no fire on a new coil swapped my old coil out with one of the other coils and it fires

Mine did the same thing. Changed plugs and wires and wala' - fixed.

Coil has to be fireing before it warrants changing plugs

Not sure how you were testing your coil but I think you should still consider the plugs. Does this car also have ignition wires? They too could be the cause for misfires. Does the car have a single coil unit or one for each cylinder? Different techniques would be used to troubleshoot. What happened when you put the "old coil" back in? you said it worked but did the miss stop?
